Speaking on KISS FM this morning (Feb. 10th), Madonna reacted to M.I.A.‘s middle finger incident at the Super Bowl, calling it “negative” and “a teenager irrelevant thing to do”:

To tell you the truth, I didn’t even know about. I didn’t find out until I left. I found out about it in the elevator to get to the car and get to the airport. I wasn’t happy about it. I know it’s kind of punk rock and everything, but to me, there was such a feeling of love and good energy and positivity, and it just seemed negative.”

It’s kind of a teenager irrelevant thing to do in one respect, but there was such a feeling of love and unity there so what was the point? It was just out of place.

M.I.A. has since apologized to Madonna for class clownin’ on her style for the sake of her own buzz. Which kind of worked because, well, you know, we’re talking about it. For the record, here’s how I feel about the whole thing (via reddit):

The "incident."

Now that we’ve had some distance from the whole thing, and both sides have weighed in, what do you guys think? Totally punk rock? Immature upstaging? Complete non-issue? Let us know in the comments.
